We’re excited to announce the launch of a new blog this week. Fifteen Stories will bring you an insight into the world of local suppliers and producers, our people, our charity and the many interwoven stories that shape our menus and ethos.
Photographer and writer Beth Druce is behind this online journal and became inspired to write about its stories following her first visit. She says: “When I first visited Fifteen over ten years ago, I, like so many, was excited by the food. Whilst Cornwall had long been renowned for its fantastic fish and seafood restaurants, the concept of a menu that took inspiration from Italy whilst celebrating the best of what this part of the UK produced felt new, fresh and wildly different to anything else on offer, a factor that holds true in 2017 where the menu may have changed and evolved but the concept and commitment remains just as true.”
Beth Druce is one of the people, inspired by what we do: “Repeated visits and time photographing the chefs as they worked in the kitchen lead me to realise that Fifteen Cornwall is about so much more than great food. It’s a far-reaching infrastructure that’s proved instrumental in nurturing local, sustainable food producers in Cornwall, people who are passionate about the production of a single ingredient or who have turned the development of ecologically farmed vegetables into their life’s work. Producers, who, as their geographical reach expands outside of Cornwall are shaping food culture in Britain as a whole.”
